This was an excellent adventure, and everything about it worked out exceedingly well. I am happy to have ran it, and was able to characterize both villains and NPCs in an excellent way, given the high caliber of adventure writing herein. The final bit with the fire elemental was a nice touch, though I was not surprised to see that the group went with attacking rather than paying the price. I wonder how many characters opt for that choice.

I am thoroughly impressed by this adventure series. Again, I'd leave a review, but I am sadly unable to due to my status as a "publisher".

The Determining Party Strength table on page 2 is missing the APL values in the 1st column:

3-4 characters, APL less than
3-4 characters, APL equivalent
3-4 characters, APL greater than
5 characters, APL less than
5 characters, APL equivalent
5 characters, APL greater than
6-7 characters, APL less than
6-7 characters, APL equivalent
6-7 characters, APL greater than

APL less, equivalent to or greater than what?

That’s intentional. It’s a generic table used across all AL adventures, so the APL isn’t listed in the table. You can find the APL in the second paragraph of the Adventurers League Introduction, where it reads, “and is optimized for five 3rd-level characters”. So the APL is 3.

I realize this can be confusing, so in future adventures, the APL listing will be clearer.

Rules Edition(s)
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
